On a website called SportsData that we just came across:
All the stats — delivered when and how you need them
SportsData will cover all the major U.S. sports in real time. Our team of data-entry experts crunch play-by-play information for packaging and delivery using new technology that results in the fastest updates in the industry. And because our clients demand depth, no statistic is too small. The SportsData feed covers every fantasy football scoring system and will be served up to clients in a format that requires minimal effort to switch from their current stats provider.
SportsData will extend coverage beyond the big four professional sports to blanket the sports world, both pro and amateur. You will find our data updates to be, at a minimum, on par with other providers in the industry.

Very interesting entry into the sports statistics field. Let's hope this firm can actually provide some competition in the sports stats market, which doesn't have much variety in terms of price selection or options (and the top firm has surely exploited that advantage quite well thus far). We haven't seen the SportsData sample feeds or content, but the marketing on the website sure sounds good. We hope these guys can succeed in giving the fantasy sports industry some more quality stat offerings.
